SOURCE: 1989 virago wont get rpms up after start

is it just out of winter storeage? could be gum in the carbs, get some fuel system cleaner additive and put it in the gas. run it on idle and get it hot, leave to stand overnight and try again. you are not getting enough gas and when you open it up you are giving more air but not getting enough gas. try changing fuel filter too.

If it is possible to start at all. Fresh fuel fresh engine oil good battery. You may have the following problems; Corroded and blocked carburetor fuel system, bad wire connections piston ring set up.... I hope it was kept indoors and the fuel was drained out before it was left sitting. Good luck, they are nice bikes.

1994 virago 1100. Starter spins but wont turnover motor.


Hi, Manuelverdin the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Next time you get it warmed up, check the compression on the front cylinder when it quits. Be careful of course since it will be hot. It is possible that you are losing compression when everything heats up and expands, but it comes back when the bike cools.

Virago left on PRI and now won't start...


Check your oil level. If your carburetor overflowed and filled the engine with gas you may have fowled your air filter with oil/gas. If your level is too high you will have to change you oil. Also check your air filter to make sure is is not gas/oil fowled it may need changing.

1990 virago 535 starts and runs great for about 3 or 4 miles


Pull the float bowl caps off the carbs and then spray carb cleaner into the main jet and all other accessible ports on the carbs. Chances are there is a build up of water condensation in the carbs.
